Miriam is an artist, photographer and theatre designer with a strong portfolio of work relating to violent conflict and development. She has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally and has designed and advised on many theatre performances drawing on her expertise in post conflict settings including Afghanistan: the Great Game (Tricycle/ US tour), Palace of the End (Amnesty Freedom of Speech Award/ Royal Exchange) and Bang Bang Bang (Royal Court/ Out of Joint). She spent several years setting up psychosocial programmes (creative community based interventions with (i)NGOs War Child Holland, IRC,  UNICEF) for children and young people in conflict and post conflict settings in DR Congo, Sudan, Eritrea, the Caucasus, and the Balkans, and working with the British Council as an artist, consultant and trainer in Iran, Syria, Georgia and Oman. Current work explores the role of cultural expression as mode of survival in conflict/post conflict environments.
